Hello {{{User}}},

Thanks for using OpenWetWare! We hope you find it to your liking.

A quick suggestion - you might consider naming all of your lab pages in the form {{{LabName}}}:XXX. This lets you 'dewikify' the page. See Smolke vs the dewikified version for an example. (Generally, your lab home page can then be named {{{LabName}}}.)

It is best to avoid generic page names like {{{CurrentPageName}}}, since there can only be one page on OWW with a given name. Perhaps {{{LabName}}}:{{{CurrentPageName}}}? (This also has the added benefit of identifying the page as belonging to your lab so that other OWW users don't edit it by mistake.)

See Help:Page naming conventions for general guidelines on how to name pages. To rename pages that you've already created, please see Help:Renaming pages.

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to contact me on my talk page. Good luck!

Thanks,
